Every year in November I do a short Thanksgiving post each day leading up to the holiday. It’s a fun tradition that sets the mood and let’s me practice being thankful.
This year I want to focus on ordinary things. I want to notice all the ways God generously cares for my physical needs in this temporary life.
So, day 1: today in thankful for mugs.
I love mugs. Short, tall, fat, skinny, thick, thin, ceramic, clay, or china. I have a small collection of mugs that make me smile. I like the way they feel in my hand, their pattern, their design. I love hot drinks and hot drinks shared with friends. My Mom has always said, “Coffee is a big in a mug.” If you were to make hugs solid and tangible, they would be mugs. 😁
And look at that picture! God would have been kind to provide me with one mug. That would have been fear more than I deserved. Instead, I have many mugs. God is so kind to me in ways that are so insignificant. He is a generous Father.
